One or our customers, Chet, sent us these pictures of his PT109 project. Here is a few things he said about his great looking RC boat-

The hull, deck and cabin is made from 3/16″ balsawood.

The hull was fiberglassed with your fabric and a resin I had on hand.

The torpedo tubes are 1/2″ PVC conduit. The torpedoes are 1/2″ dowels. The green towers are 2″ PVC conduit with fittings cut down on a chop or miter saw. The cabin vents sticking up are 1/2″ sprinkler fittings and the guns were ordered from Battle Craft in the UK. Most other parts are made out of whatever I could find and made it work.

The twin motors are outrunners for airplanes. The speed controls are 100amp rated. The receiver is a Spectrum 4 channel. The transmitter is for airplanes. Its a Spectrum DX18. All the water around here is still frozen so I’ll have to wail until it thaws for a launch.

Thanks for sharing!  We love seeing the projects our customers are working on.
